I love shrimp, and this is my version of an Italian recipe for shrimp scampi. It's the closest thing to the real Italian recipe that I can make and enjoy when I wish.
In a large skillet, melt butter with olive oil. Add garlic and saute for 1 minute. Add wine, salt, and pepper. Bring to a simmer. Let wine reduce, about 2 minutes. Add shrimp and saute 2-4 minutes, just until pink. Stir in the parsley and lemon juice. Serve over hot cooked pasta with hot crusty bread. Makes 4 servings.
Note: I sometimes heat a good Alfredo sauce and toss the pasta with it, then toss in the shrimp and lightly mix until all is covered.
